Hazel Dell Animal Hospital is a Cat Friendly Practice
Hazel Dell Animal Hospital is a Gold Member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners. We have made specific changes to our Animal Hospital to ensure that we meet our feline patient’s unique needs and implement feline-friendly standards. These changes provide a more calming environment for our feline friends. Our Veterinary Hospital is equipped with a cat only entrance and waiting room. We perform our examinations and care of our feline patients in one of two Feline Exclusive exam rooms and our Feline Exclusive treatment area. This is all done to make the visit more positive for you and your cat. Our staff is trained in approaching and handling cats in a gentle, empathetic, and caring manner. The AAFP Cat Friendly Practice(CFP) certificate on our Hospital’s wall is earned. Through a self-assessment, our practice must meet specified criteria to verify the staff, environment, and overall veterinary practice is truly cat friendly. When you see the CFP designation at a practice, you can be confident your cat will be given exceptional care and attention through all phases of the visit including examinations, procedures, and/or hospitalization. The Cat Friendly Practice ® designation indicates Hazel Dell Animal Hospital has demonstrated higher levels of commitment and excellence in feline medicine. If you have concerns of how to best bring your cat to our Hospital, please let us know. We have a variety of ideas on how to decrease your cats anxiety on the day of your visit.
